I hope everyone had as wonderful of a Christmas as I did! It was quiet—thanks to it being just me, Harrison and Paul—but it truly was fantastic. We ate a lot, drank a little and spent a ton of time relaxing and enjoying each other’s company.
I know there’s still a week left in 2013, but Christmas, not New Year’s, is always the time I start thinking about the year ahead—what my priorities will be, what I hope to accomplish and, naturally, what trends I want to try out. And I would be lying if I said I didn’t want to play with the Pantone Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid.
Right now, I have exactly one and a half pieces of Radiant Orchid in my closet: a scarf and a sweater that’s striped in front and solid orchid in back. I definitely want to add at least one more splash of this color to my wardrobe in 2014, so I’ve rounded up a list of pieces I’d love to get my hands on:
This is one of those shades that I think is flattering on nearly everyone, and it instantly adds some life and personality to any ensemble. I would love to use just a dose of it in my accessories to brighten up a neutral outfit, or really make a statement with a full-orchid dress.
How will you wear the Color of the Year?
